Re: A fashion disaster

I thought everyone had "house clothes" and "outing clothes"? Who has a whole wardrobe of clothes that they where both in and out of the house??????

Holdfast. In fact he has two, one for spring/summer and one for fall/winter.

Holdfast has clothes simply for use in the hallway between the kitchen and the foot of the stairs.

Re: A fashion disaster

I wear "sleep pants" in the house, but not outside. If I'm going outside, I put on jeans. I also have a 30 year old real leather Motorcycle/Bomber jacket I wear when it's cold outside around the yard, but today, it's just too dorky looking for "down town".

Plenty. You'd be surprised. I imagine those people must have a larger clothes budget - if things get ruined, they just buy more.

I have a pair of bright pink Crocs. They're very comfortable around the house and in the garden but I wouldn't be caught dead wearing them outside.

Absolutely. This is entirely what I do when it comes to clothes. Why buy nice stuff & never wear it?

I use wardrobe space as the one form of quantity control on my clothes. I've deliberately held off buying more wardrobes/chests of drawers because I know I'd just fill them up within months!

Personally I think Ugg Boots look really cute on women. But like most things they need to be worn the right way. I think in winter with tight jeans = super cute. Summer with sun dress = stupid. Leggings + Uggs = You need the right legs and color coordination to pull it off.

Or they know how to clean and repair their clothes.

I prefer the simpler method, "Why buy nice stuff at all when you can get away with wearing Yankees gear pretty much 24/7?"

Cleaning and repairing cannot do much for items which look faded and tired due to be being worn night and day. Daily wear and tear shows up on certain materials especially.

You can keep clothes looking new as long as possible by resting them when you get home, or you can wear them non-stop regardless and replace them at an accelerated rate. I was merely stating that the choice between the two might be affected by individual budget.

Re: A fashion disaster

I guess I'm the oddball because when I get up in the morning and take a shower, I dress in whatever I plan to wear for that day. That entire day. I don't lounge around the house in sweatpants or underwear. I wear jeans and a shirt. I'll only change if I have to (like if I'm going to the gym or I'm going to do something that requires a different set of clothes).

That's true.

I guess I throw my stuff out or tear it up when it reaches the point that I don't want to wear it in public. But I'm not sure I'd save a lot of money by changing when I got home - most of the wear and tear happens outside, and I'd imagine a trip through the washing machine adds more to fading than a few hours of sitting around at home.

Re: A fashion disaster

I have these terrible shorts that have hung around our family since I was like 8 years old. My mom handed them down to my sister, and she handed them down to me. The elastic's all worn out in the waist, they're way shorter than anything I would wear in public, and they're white...but they're soooo comfy to lounge around in during the summer. I'm just happy I'm comfortable enough around my roommates to wear them around the apartment.
